Author Teaches Kids Fundamentals of Reading, Writing in Engaging New Coloring Book

·2 min read

In 'Coloring Your Way to Better English,' Larry W. Hilliard provides educators and caregivers with an uncomplicated, accessible resource that incorporates playtime, fun, and personal connection into the learning process

PRESCOTT, Ariz., May 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Author and veteran Larry W. Hilliard has published a delightful teaching tool that leverages the importance of creativity and play in the process of introducing kids to the wonderful world of reading and writing. In "Coloring Your Way to Better English," Hilliard provides a relationship-building tool to be used by parents, guardians, and educators so they can teach the kids in their care everything from what nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs are to the components that make up sentences as well as more complicated grammar rules.

Whether a child is just starting to learn how to read, is learning English as a second language, or is struggling in school and needs additional guidance, Hilliard's book provides an outside-the-box technique that, through coloring, allows children to engage more effectively in the learning process and have fun along the way. "Coloring Your Way to Better English" also provides a much-needed tool for caregivers and homeschool teachers who are working with young children, whether in the home or remotely, during the pandemic and who may not have access to the resources they once did, such as the public library system.

"This is your time as a parent to sit with your kid and monitor and mentor and guide," Hilliard said. "This book helps caregivers and educators to teach children with patience, and most importantly, celebrate the small things."

Ultimately, "Coloring Your Way to Better English" is a non-threatening, uncomplicated resource that provides a simple and quick method for connecting with children and stoking their love of the written word. By adding playtime to the equation, Hilliard's book invites kids to color outside the lines and connect with the English language in a meaningful, hands-on way.
